Established in 2014 as a solitary design and retail brick-and-mortar in Costa Mesa, CA, May Martin has blossomed into a collective of skilled artisans dedicated to crafting enduring, cherished pieces. Our growth now includes a second physical location with a third on the way soon! May Martin customers are not only acquiring quality products but also gaining access to exceptional customer care and a lifetime commitment to repair services.


At May Martin, we believe beautifully-designed, handmade jewelry should be accessible to people everywhere.


Lily, our founder and lead designer, embarked on her artistic journey in Florence, Italy, captivated by the allure of jewelry design. She sharpened her skills at major global brands including Harley-Davidson, Tommy Bahama, and private label designs for QVC and HSN. She has brought her vision to life with an enduring, elegant jewelry line that offers quality at a reasonable price point. Lily achieves this through her meticulous choice of materials and premium natural gemstones. Raised in Miami's vibrant culture, Lily infuses her artistic energy into the warm California settings of May Martin's studio and storefront. Her commitment to completing each piece with dedication and love is her unique touch, making May Martin a truly exceptional experience for every customer.
